The reason Henderson Home Inspection does not do termite inspections (and why you need to have it done by a licensed termite inspector) is that the Texas Department of Agriculture requires by law that anyone doing a termite inspection must be licensed as a termite inspector. Be aware that you might find an home inspector who says they can do a "termite inspection" but they cannot legally do a Termite Inspection Report for you unless they are a Texas State "licensed" termite inspector. Those home inspectors who are not licensed have usually taken an online class to be "certified" in termite inspection but they are NOT licensed and are legally prohibited from doing termite inspection reports.

"Structural Pest Control Applicator:
The Structural Pest Control Act (Chapter 1951 of the Occupations Code) requires licensing of businesses and individuals that perform structural pest control for hire. Additionally, employees of units of state government who apply pesticides as part of their job duties, and persons performing pest control at an apartment building, day-care center, hospital, nursing home, hotel, motel, or lodge, warehouse, food-processing establishment (other than a restaurant, retail food, or food service establishment), or school must be licensed. Structural pest control includes but is not limited to pests that may infest parks, buildings or structures and adjacent areas, industrial plants, streets, docks, railroad cars, trucks, ships or airplanes. Structural pest control includes the following activities for compensation:
•making inspection reports,
•submitting estimates or bids,
•performing services to prevent, control or eliminate infestations, or
•advertising such services."
Relentless Gunnie Butch is an American Bulldog and a service dog owned and trained by Jodi Foster and Jim Henderson. Butch and Purple Heart recipient SSGT.
